The aim of the project is to raise awareness of the new generation of European citizens about the impact of hate speech on democratic participation and European values. Hate speech is often used as a tool to target different vulnerable groups, especially minorities, immigrants and refugees. It causes their alienation and exclusion which leads to marginalisation. Such narratives weaken democracy and strengthens positions of far right and radical right populists and Eurosceptics.
Although the overall removal rate of 70,6 % turned out to be only slightly lower compared to the last monitoring (-1,1 percentage points), this result is mostly owed to Facebook’s consistently high removal rate of 84,5% (+0,9 percentage points) and Instagram’s improvement to 77,2% (+6,6 percentage points). Twitter’s performance remained low at 44,9% (+1,4 percentage points), and YouTube only removed 67,8% of illegal hate content, a major drop of 17,6 percent points compared to its last checked performance.
